La 4e de couv. indique : "Si bien las primeras expediciones a la Florida desde su descubrimiento en 1512 tuvieron en común su fracaso final, ha pasado a la posteridad como máximo ejemplo de insensatez e improvisación. Felizmente, tal cátastrofe nos dejó el documento excepcional en que Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vacarelatá sus desventuras, desde la dispersión de la naves y el cautiverio de sus tripulantes, hasta su posterior liberación y la penosa peregrinación durante años por las tierras del actual sur de Estados Unidos. Si Naufragios posee un inestimable valor etnográfico por sus descripciones de pueblos y costumbres, la crónica alcanza tonos épicos en su narración de hazañas, calamidades y peligros, siendo la experiencia de su autor, como concluye Trinidad Barrera, un verdadero "descenso a los infiernos que sólo una naturaleza superior podía resistir"
The journey of Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca( Book )

11 editions published between 1905 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alvar Nuñez joined the expedition of Pámfilo de Narvaez to Florida in 1526 as treasurer. With two other Spaniards and an Arab Moor, he was the only survivor who remained on the mainland. For eight years they roamed along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas under the greatest of hardships, their position among the Indians being wellnigh intolerable. In utter despair, Cabeza de Vaca at last tried his scanty knowledge of medicine and, his cures proving successful, he became a renowned medicine man among the natives, his companions following the example. The treatment to which they resorted partook of the nature of a faith-cure. He declares the sign of the cross to be a seldom-failing remedy. The belief of the outcasts in miracles was sincere, while acknowledging that they also employed indigenous Indian remedies with simple Christian religious ceremonials. After nine years they reached the Pacific coast in Sonora, Mexico, thus being the first Europeans to travel across the North American continent
